Digimon Xros Wars Anime to Get 2nd Year This October

posted on by Egan Loo
New year to introduce new world, characters, Digimon creatures

The October issue of Shueisha's V Jump magazine is confirming on Saturday that the Digimon Xros Wars anime will continue into its second year on October 2. In its second year, the anime will "hyper-evolve" with a new world, new friends, and new Digimon creatures, although it will still revolve around the main character Taiki and his friends. In particular, the new year will deal with a secret hidden in the gap between the real and digital worlds.

The anime will introduce a mysterious new boy named Tagiru Akashi who will hold the key to the story. Other new Xros Loader-wielding human Digimon partners, who may be friend or foe, will be introduced such as a Ryōma Mogami and Airu Suzaki.

The ongoing Digimon Xros Wars anime is the first new Digimon anime to air in Japan since 2006-2007's Digimon Savers, which ran in the United States under the name: Digimon: Data Squad. Bandai Namco Games will ship a new Digimon World: Re:Digitize "digital monster-raising role-playing game" for the PSP platform next year.
